National Environmental Policy Act (Jongmin Kim)
- Formed in 1969, and stated that federal agencies consider environmental factors and values into their decisions by thinking about the environmental impacts their decisions would make.
- To meet NEPA’s requirements, federal agents fill out a detailed statement called the
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS
). The Environmental Protection Agency then reviews all the EIS’ to make sure they comply with NEPA’s standards.
- The NEPA process consists of an evaluation of relevant environmental effects of a federal project or action undertaking, including a series of pertinent alternatives. The NEPA process begins when an agency develops a proposal to address a need to take an action. Once a determination of whether or not the proposed action is covered under NEPA there are three levels of analysis that a federal agency may undertake to comply with the law. These three levels include: preparation of a Categorical Exclusion (CE), preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI); or preparation and drafting of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
Based on an agency’s experience with a particular kind of action and its environmental effects.
A screening document used to determine if an agency will need to prepare either an EIS or construct a FONSI.
Presents the reasons why an action will not have a significant effect on the human environment.
